  • 4 oranges

  • 3 blood oranges

  • 1 small onion, finely diced

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • salt

  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper

  • 10 dried black olives


  1. Slice a little piece off the top and bottom of each orange so you have a stable cutting surface. Trim away all skin and pith with a small sharp knife without taking too much off the fruit. Slice oranges horizontally and arrange on a serving platter.

  2. Combine onion, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt in a bowl and pour over the oranges. Grind fresh pepper over the salad and arrange black olives on top.

Cook's Note:

If not using dried olives, make sure you drain off as much brine as possible.
